Third Grade

R.O.C.K.S

the School House!

Remembering Our Commitment to Kids


As a team, we believe that all children

have the capacity to learn.

  • if they are given a nurturing environment

  • mistakes are viewed as a learning experience


We Know That...

-all students need a well-structured learning environment

-all students need connections w/teacher & students

-a knowledgeable teacher (our team has over 40 years combined experience!)

-engaging learning activities

-all students need recognition

Predicting Outcomes

There are many specific reading skills that we teach directly through daily mini-lessons and independent practice.


  • Testing in 3rd Grade

    • We have district benchmark testing for reading, math and science during the year to assess student progress.

    • STAAR testing includes Reading and Math


Sample question: (test 2003)

After reading 2 1/2 pages about “Lucy and the Chickens,” the children are asked questions like:

#7 Which of the following is the best summary of the story?

A. Lucy’s father comes home from town and sees the henhouse door open. He uses chicken feed to get the chickens back into the henhouse.

B. Lucy is too short to reach the hook on the henhouse door. She promises her father that she will never try to open the door by herself.

C. Lucy is not supposed to open the henhouse door by herself, but she wants to give the chickens some water. When she opens the door, the chickens get out. Lucy and her father must catch them.

D. Lucy helps around the family farm on a hot day. She sweeps the porch, gives water to the dog, and waters the flowers. Then she begins to worry that the chickens are thirsty, too.


READ to your children.

LISTEN to your children read.

ENCOURAGE your child to read SILENTLY…and then ask them to tell you what they read. Ask questions.

CHECK OUT high-interest books, such as Bluebonnets, Newberry Winners, and books recommended by friends.

As parents, we understand that schedules can

be very busy and hectic. Sometimes creative solutions,

such as completing reading/studying for DOS in the car

on the way to games or practices, might be necessary.


BE ROLE MODELS…let your child see you read books, magazines, and newspapers. Share interesting articles with your child.

SHARE with them stories you loved as a child.

Get a library card at the

Allen Public Library and

visit weekly.

IMPROVE NUMBER FLUENCY

Students practice numerical fluency daily.

In third grade the students will be expected to learn multiplication facts 0-12.

Multiplication skills will be practiced

weekly beginning in the

5th 6 weeks .


#17 (2003 test) Sally had 90 days of summer vacation. Each day she did one fun exercise. She swam on 33 of the days and played basketball on 24 of the days. She rode her bike on all of the other days of her vacation. Which number sentence shows one way to find the number of days that Sally rode her bike? Mark your answer.

A. 90 - 33 + 24 =

B. 90 + 24 + 33 =

C. 90 - 33 -24 =

D. 90 - 24 + 33=
